88’s ‘Breakfast with Your Neighbors’ Event Was a Great Success!
Minto 88 Homeowners got up bright and early this past Saturday morning to enjoy a gourmet breakfast, meet their neighbours and have the opportunity to chat with the Minto team of experts! The event took place in 88’s stunning party room, and what better way to congratulate the purchasers for their new home, then to invite them to one of their very own beautiful amenity spaces!
Paul Martin, our Manager of Performance Audit & Condominium Operations, opened up the event with a warm welcome and he, along with Minto experts from our Construction department, Master Care Department, and Sales Department, provided some important details regarding the building’s Construction, Green features, and Mastercare related items! The Experts wandered through the crowd to answer any of the resident’s questions about their suite and building.
The Minto team was extremely excited to meet our homeowners, hear their feedback and host them in the newly finished party room!
We were also thrilled to show off the completed time-lapse video showing construction of 88 from 2013 to today. For the last 2 years we had a camera set up to take a photo of the construction site every 10 minutes to compile this beautiful video of our progress. It is quite amazing and something we are very proud of.
Thank you to all those who attended our event! We hope that everyone enjoyed the great food, had a chance to meet a new neighbour, and had their building questions answered. What a great way to celebrate with our wonderful new homeowners! Take a look at our stunning Party Room!
An oasis in the city, 88 Sheppard residents are taking in these last few breaths of warm fall air as they cozy up to and enjoy every moment of their beautiful water garden view.
It is no wonder our residents are feeling the serenity of our feng shui inspired water feature design that promotes optimal energy flow throughout all of 88’s indoor and outdoor spaces. The water garden at 88 offers residents and guests a unique escape from the city in a calm and soothing environment surrounded by nature. Our auspicious onlookers have an exclusive experience of viewing the beautiful and calm water garden from their private living spaces, as well 88’s amenity areas. Cardio at the fitness centre doesn’t seem so bad when you can look out at the tranquil, flowing water and lush greenery.
88 is located in the bustling Yonge and Sheppard neighbourhood, just slightly set back from the main intersection. With a stunning water view and cottage in the city vibe, this condominium gives you a true escape from the city while still being at the centre of it all with access to two subway lines, Hwy 401, plus everything you need within walking distance. The environment is the perfect harmonious balance of elements.
It is so exciting that 88 is now complete and over 50% of our residents have moved in. We’re so happy that our new homeowners can enjoy the peace, tranquility and getaway they envisioned!
We now have occupancy at 88! This is a huge construction milestone and means that we have completed the building and passed all the necessary inspections for residents to begin moving in.
Last Saturday, we welcomed our very resident, Roberto, to his new home at 88 with a welcome basket from Minto. He was ecstatic to take possession of his new condo and to receive such a warm greeting from the Move-In team. He can’t wait to be all set-up in his new condo at Yonge and Sheppard. Thanks for being our first move-in Roberto! You are the first one to call this amazing new building home!
88 is looking fabulous (if we do say so ourselves!) with most of the amenity areas now complete. Take a look at the photos below to see for yourself:
The last area to be completed is the watergarden, which will be filled with water in the next few weeks. We’ll keep you updated on its status and show you the final product once it’s done!
It’s been a while since we last had an update from 88 but we’ve been making lots of great progress. Check out the photos below to see what we’ve been up to lately.
We’re finishing the concrete pouring on the P2 level.
We’re also pouring concrete on the ground floor.
We’ve started installing the rebar for the ground floor wall.
On the P2 level, we’re installing waterproofing on the wall.
The photo above shows the concrete columns for the party room on the ground floor. In winter there’s a high possibility of the columns freezing, so we wrap some tarps around the columns and then we pump heat into the tarp so that the concrete columns don’t freeze. We keep doing this until the weather warms up.
As you can see from the photos, we’re working through the cold weather and looking forward to even more progress as spring approaches. We’ll have another update for you in a few weeks.
At our Chinese New Year celebration event at Minto30Roe last week, we brought in the renowned Feng Shui master and Geomancer Paul Ng to make some predictions about the New Year. Paul was the perfect person to host the event thanks to his immense experience in the field. He has advised many notable dignitaries on the subject of Geomancy including the Governor of Hiltago, Mexico and the Mayor of Kingston, Jamaica. He has even received the Canada Federal award for his many contributions to the Canadian Society and the Canada Day Achievement Award.
Paul has also worked with us on the design of 88 and he even named the project! We caught up with Paul to discuss his work, how he came up with 88’s name, and what we can expect from the Year of the Horse. Continue reading A conversation with North America’s number one Feng Shui Master
